Summer's Must-Buy Skin Products 2016
Between the billions of products on the shelves these days and summer being just around the corner, I understand your panic. That's why today I bring you the top face & body products for a gorgeous glowy healthy summer skin! All tried and tested. So, Get your notes and get ready for some serious shopping.
Shu Uemura: High Performance Balancing Cleansing Oil
One of the all-time best-seller from the Japanese Beauty brand and basically its good at two main things: removing makeup like no other makeup remover, and leaving your skin clean and hydrated that it barely needs any moisturizer (unlike most cleansers).
Why I recommend it: I would recommend it for everyday use to anyone with dry to very dry skin or for any skin type as a brilliant and super effective makeup remover.
Shirley Conlon: RoseHip Face Oil
This is the product that made me believe in miracles! I have neverseen another organic product that has visible stunning results from the very first application! Shirley Conlon is a lady with such gorgeous healthy skin (The biggest endorsement for her products!) and who creates all the products herself. The oil is a combination of Organic Rosehip seed oil, blended with carrots, sea buckthorn and anti-aging acmella extract.
Why I recommend it: I apply it at bed time, and I have to say I wake up every morning barely even needing to apply a day moisturizer. It left my skin very fresh, glowing and with the softest texture I have seen in ages, even on the roughest spots like my nose. It has also helped immensely with the disappearance of pores.
Rivage: Dead Sea Mud Face Mask
I have been using this mask for 3 years now because of how purified and soft my skin feels after using it. I love the fact that I can just apply it once a week, follow it with a good moisturizer and I wake up to great glowing skin.
Why I recommend it: This one goes a long way in terms of results and also how long the single container will stay with you. It only takes 20 minutes before it completely dries and you can rub it off and then apply some water and you will reveal some baby-soft skin!
L'Occitane: Almond Shower Oil
First things first, using a great quality everyday shower wash is the best way to ensure your skin is thoroughly cleaned and prepped. I have been using this one for years and Its one of those rare products that I keep going back to year after year.
Why I recommend it: It cleans your skin without stripping its natural oils and the smooth texture and mellow smell leaves it soft, fresh and smelling amazingness!
Lush: Ocean Salt Body Scrub
One of the best I have tried recently. This lovely mix of sea salt, together with avocado, coconut, seaweed, and grapefruit leaves your skin nothing but beach ready.
Why I recommend it: The minerals in this sea salt clarifies your skin by removing dead cells, leaving it super soft and fresh. the color and smell will transform your shower into a little tropical getaway!
Lush: Ro's Argan Body Conditioner
When I first heard the words 'Body Conditioner', I thought I got it wrong. Minutes later I was at the counter purchasing it, after trying it on one hand and feeling like my skin has been re-born.
This pot of gorgeousness is a blend of cocoa butter, almond and argan oil, as well as fresh rose petals, making it one of Lush's most luxurious products yet.
Why I recommend it: It only takes a few minutes to apply in the shower, but OMG my skin felt so soft and hydrated for almost 10 hours that followed. The smell also stayed with me for that long and I didnt need to apply any body lotion! Win/Win.
Kiehl's: Creme De Corps Whipped Body Butter
Believe it or not, this was actually one of the very first products I have tried from the brand, and basically what got me to fall in love with it. A blend of Soy Milk and honey in a creamy texture which gets absorbed within a few minutes into your skin leaves a lovely smell behind.
Why I recommend it: I loved the fact that I apply it every night and wake up to very smooth and well hydrated skin, especially in such a tough weather we live in. Makes it the perfect summer companion after those long hours in the sun!
